Stephanie started her career as an athletic trainer after receiving her Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology at the University of Virginia, followed by a Masters in Athletic Training at the University of North Carolina where she investigated the effects of postural training on shoulder pain in swimmers. After working for three years as an ATC, she was inspired to return to school for physical therapy to be able to serve a broader population. She received her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Virginia Commonwealth University. Since then she has worked with pediatric and adult populations in Peru and has just completed the Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency at Harris Health System in Houston, Texas. Stephanie has extensive experience in treating patients with shoulder pain, having participated in research projects in school and at her residency. She utilizes a combination of manual therapy and exercise with an emphasis on functional movements to address any orthopedic condition. She also has a special interest working with patients with chronic pain having received extensive training on pain science education. Stephanie loves to cook, swim, hike and travel to new places with her husband Edward.
